    Here's my take on "RTS" Soundwave.
    RTSSW012.JPG
    This one took a bit to finish, the blue didn't come out like I wanted first time around, so I had to strip it all down, and re-spray.

    No real mods here other than the head that was reworked to accept a ball joint, allowing full range of movement, and removing the rear spoiler/redefining the rear window.

    Head is from WFC Soundwave, along with the weapons...the "antennae" on the shoulder weapon is the kickstand from HFTD Brimstone. Lazerbeak and Ravage are courtesy of TF: Prime Soundwave.
    Laserbeak and the shoulder cannon are attached via magnets that latch onto the wheel pins.​

    Colors used are Krylon Navy Blue. Tamiyah Black, Blue, and Semi Gloss Black. Model Masters Silver. Rust-Oleum Safety Yellow. Testors Red. Decals are custom made (water slide) from eBay.
    My intent here was a "Rally Car" vibe...I think I nailed it. Maybe?​

    Never thought that Soundwave would fit so well on Jazz.

    Amazing job all around! :thumb

    No...that's the logo for DC Shoes. They're a sponsor of Ken Block.
